The loss dropped the Panthers’ Eastern Wisconsin Conference record to 2-3 (5-5 overall). PHS also lost to Campbellsport in a seasonopening EWC quadrangular.

“A great battle by both teams. We were neck-and-neck for the entire match. There were incredibly long rallies and hard-fought points every time,” said Panther head coach Peggy Huhn.

“There were some very long rallies in the fifth game that could have gone either way and really could have had completely opposite results and feel of the set [game].

The game [match] was so close and really so well-played. I saw some great fire in the girls and a true desire to fight and win,” said Huhn.

Sophomore outside hitter Sophie Albert keyed the Panthers’ hitting with 17 kills. Mary Albert, Sophie’s older sister, led in assists with 25. Elizabeth Baus and Sophie Albert paced PHS in digs with 12 apiece.

Sophie Albert and Baus were the team’s top servers with 8-for-8 and 17-for-18, respectively. Mary Albert and Delaney Haese led in ace serves with five each.

Hayley Mueller and Megan Goeser had a team-high two solo blocks apiece for PHS. Cara Bardon led in serve reception with 13- for-13.

“Really great defense from Elizabeth Baus. She was reading their attack so well and really picking things up,” said Huhn.

“Attacking by Sophie Albert was very tough. She really was able to mix things up and is quickly becoming a pillar of our offense. Megan Goeser really is starting to block well for us as well. She has a great reach.”
